Painting for sale, by his wife's brother

A painting of the Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood, depicting him as a vampire, is being auctioned on eBay.

Weirdly, the portrait of Wood is by the brother of his currently-estranged wife Jo - the artist Paul Karslake. It was commissioned by FX TV channel to help launch the new series of hit US drama True Blood.

Karslake previously painted a famed portrait of fellow Stone Keith Richards as a pirate.

When actor Johnny Depp dined at Richards' one evening, he took inspiration to create his Keef-alike character Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies. Richards still owns the original painting.

Both portraits are pictured below.
